    I can't see this Run lasting too much longer without another consolidation
    week. As Birch says; the market likes to shake the trees before climbing.
    (heck, something like that). James P&F Chart, Birch's Crossover and my
    gut tells us its not over ! But a temporary drop, maybe as much as 6%
    is what I'm trying to avoid right now.

    mi casa es su casa!

    This is probably the most beautiful expression I've ever heard.

    Other languages have the ability to express things far beyond our simple English version - and do it in such a way as to express much more heart, life, and feelings.

    Please tell me what your singnature expresses... I have no clue and even if I translated it - I could miss the real meaning.

    Quaere verum. Don't settle for anything less. Timendi causa est nescire.

    Steady, Buster started it! Back during election chatter. I was attempting to alleviate mistruths and calumny being carelessly thrown around as truth-various parties. He changed his tag along the way, reflecting his anti-boredom personality, I haven't gotten around to changing mine to something I like better-symptomatic of my own procrastinating nature.:toung:

    My tag reads "Seek the truth, settle for nothing less, ignorance causes fear".

    Good morning my dear Sister !

    Thanks for the explanation and that makes all the sense in the world.

    Listen Alevin I have a knack for finding 'Character' - because in the end that's what's most important. So do as you wish but I would not change it at all. I think 'Seek the TRUTH, settle for nothing less, ignorance causes fear' is an excellent signiture that describes you well.

    In my world - I'd already determined what it meant

    Alevin,
    I've never had a sister until I met you - and now it's unbelievable how meaningful you are in a very solid way. I was going to leave a while back - but decided to stay until everything was caught up and now I'm finally ready to leave.

    Anyway when you haven't been around for awhile I worry about ya and wonder if everything's OK. As your big brother don't ever hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can do.

    Well I couldn't head home without letting ya know - I hope you're OK and you've been missed.

    Steady

    Hi Steady, yes I've been quiet lately, nothing to be concerned about. Nothing turrible going on, just same-same, waitin on the market to finally figure out things AREN"T getting better anytime soon, and take another nosedive-either that or wait for 13x34 week EMA cross, or 20x50 week SMA cross, or ADX move supporting DMI+ cross up over DM- on weekly chart. Ichimoku weekly charts still non-contenders too. I'm not chasing the bear rally, once I missed the first couple days of it, which I knew in my gut at the time, coulda shoulda gone for it, but since I didn't, I'm waiting for bigger better surer bang for my bucks-it will come. Meantime still learning to play with ETFs, albeit w/limited funds-I'm more active at present on ETFtalk.

    Sis is same same too, haven't talked to her lately but the family grapevine says same same-no movement on the western (eastern) front-she thinks she has her priorities straight re putting kid-care issues before her own needs-I choose to disagree, but irrelevant. even if kid-care issues weren't present, doubtful she'd move in the medical direction we hoped for-mind too set in hopelessness/inertia to change unless forced-but there is no leverage to force change. Prayer and letting go of outcomes-only way to deal with that one.

    I've offered my nephew a place to stay if he wants to go back to school and retrain for a different type of tech job, alternately offered to loan money for unaffordable tools so he could land first mechanic job-no movement there yet either, but I hope he's considering the offers-income situation getting desperate with benefits and hours cut and cut and cut in current job.

    OK, so back to my regularly scheduled program of doubt and doom-casting. I really like John Hussman's analyses. Here's excerpts from his most recent....http://www.hussman.net/wmc/wmc090420.htm

    Overall, the picture looks a lot like the bounce we observed in May 2001 (just before unemployment shot up and the market plunged again to fresh lows), when I wrote:
    “I've noted that most of the talk of having hit bottom in the economy is without support from the data. I have very little doubt that rather than having hit bottom, the economy is about to turn far uglier, far faster, than most analysts imagine. The economic outlook is increasingly bleak, but I have no opinion about how long investors will be able to look over the valley (or canyon) in hopes of a recovery.”

    The market enjoyed another bear market rally a year later, well before the final lows. Again, the rally was coupled with hopes of a recovery, fueled by “upside surprises” in measures that were actually still very tepid. While the recession was in fact already over, that didn't stop the market from suffering a near-30% plunge to the final lows.

    we should be careful to make distinctions between what constitutes improvement, and what only constitutes a backing off from extreme risk aversion. Put bluntly, the economy is not improving, and it is not likely to improve within a few months, because we have far more defaults, foreclosures, and credit excesses to work through. It is simply not true that the stock market heads higher 6 months before the economy bottoms. That simplification was true of 1970 and 1975, but not much else. Rather, there is enormous variation, and about the only reliable tendency is that stocks are usually advancing strongly within about 3 months of a recession's end. That said, in the 2000-2002 plunge, the market didn't bottom until about a year after the recovery started.

    If you believe we're going higher, do you believe trying to avoid a 6% drop is worth the risk? Will you look to add to your equities if we get a 6% drop?

    I am looking to add, but that's more of an ETF talk issue.

    Bullitt, not sure if you're talking to me or SB, but since he's taking a break at the moment, it sounded to me like he was planning on being ready to bail back in after last Monday's drop if he hasn't already-I haven't kept track very well.

    I recently freed up some ETF cash myself and making plans for some new buying when indications are that the turn has finally arrived. Not there yet but close. Inverses but not triplex inverses. Also a few single stocks I'm eyeballing-would like to pick up to 5 of those for longer holds once they come back down closer to my price range.
